Is the Chinese mainla亚博在线手机千花网e main focus for your

Well, we were showing in Paris, London and New York, but three years

ago we went into the mainland. We luckily found a showroom?that could help us. The mainla亚博在线手机千花网女神会所

nd’s market is hard, because stores are very new; brands might not have a website, just WeChat. But sales have

亚博在线手机千花网grown from our first season to now and it has been significant. The mainland has overtaken my orders from Europe. And of cour

se, the scale is different. We have around 25 points of sale there now. So yes, we’re focusing more and more on the mainland.亚博在线手机千花网女神会所

Do you design especially for the mainland market?

We do tailor some of our designs, yes. I sometimes follow trends, but we c亚博在线手机千花网

are more about ourselves and our feedback from the buyers, who will tell us what sol

d well last season. We take that and move forward. But if the buyer says a particular fit works, or a certain color, we亚博在线手机千花网

will expand on those things. So we take about 50% of outside advice and add 50% of our own ideas.

The media seems to portray the brand as being for fashionistas, yet Cynthia & Xiao doesn’t feel entirely that way. Would you agree?

亚博在线手机千花网女神会所Yes. It’s for fun kinds of girls who feel comfortable with themselves. We

do get some cool fashionistas who might wear our stuff and some Hong Kong KOLs [key opin

ion leaders]. But I don’t see our brand as a KOL thing. I’d rather have more people wearing and touching the prod亚博在线手机千花网

uct than a KOL endorsement. I also don’t have a massive inventory of stuff, so I don’t need some super high-profile K

亚博在线手机千花网OL. It’s about the right balance.Hongkongers don’t really seem to support their local designers – or their artist

s for that matter, either. But isn’t the current digital age meant to be all about disruption, inclusion and youth?

The mainland is also such a different kind of vibe from Hong Kong. They like that “girl-next-door” look, which is very relatable. These亚博在线手机千花网

influencers are really successful, but you don’t know who they are. It’s a different type of visibility.

We find color just works. When we started out, the palette was more muted, with navy and grey – the idea being that pieces

亚博在线手机千花网女神会所could be mixed and matched. But as we’ve grown, we’ve incorporated more color – lots of it! [laughs] – like yellow, r

ed, orange, neon green… stuff that’s really in-your-face. And they sell really well for us. The consumers seem to love it.

What’s your best-selling piece?亚博在线手机千花网女神会所

Our favorite shape is something we call “oversize”. For some girls, it could literally be a dress,

but you would have to wear something underneath. Let’s just say it covers the bottoms and is our best-sel

ling shape no matter what we do. Then again, they also don’t want something too long. They like above the knee. If you co亚博在线手机千花网

ver the knee, you look short. And of course, the aim is to look both short and thin. In Sha亚博在线手机千花网女神会所

nghai, we always go shorter – a more fitted shape. Sometimes we make longer pieces, too.

However, He Xiaopeng, chairman of Xpeng, said in a microblog cite

亚博在线手机千花网品茶微信d by International Financial News these demands are unfair to the company. When

consumers compare the bare prices of the two types, He claimed, 2019 model buyers got lots of subsidies.亚博在线手机千花网

An insider from Xpeng Motors told the newspaper the company started to promote a favorable poli

亚博在线手机千花网cy by the end of May giving a total of 20,000 yuan to each consumer, and earlier buyers of 2019 G3 mode

ls affected by the government’s subsidy-cutting scheme have also been covered by the policy.

亚博在线手机千花网品茶微信Therefore, the actual price paid by 2019 G3 buyers is comparatively lower than the 2020 G3 prices, the source added.

Xpeng Motors is not an exceptional case amid fast growth in the electric ve

hicle industry. In March, Tesla’s decision to adjust prices down also roused early bu亚博在线手机千花网

yers’ anger, asking the company to subsidize the price difference or cooperate with them to return their cars.

But a lawyer interviewed by International Financial News said no legal ground exists to support these buyers’ requests.

亚博在线手机千花网品茶微信Sun Shaojun, a motoring analyst, said Xpeng’s case represents a new

normal for the sector, as the electric vehicle industry sees exponentially faster development.

What makes Pablo Picasso such a quintessential 20th-century artist? It’s partly down to the visual ground he broke w亚博在线手机千花网品茶微信

Picasso’s innovations in perspective and technique dazzled the art wo亚博在线手机千花网

As art historians and critics emphasize the visual ground he broke with his Cubist painting, Picasso’s poetry and oth亚博在线手机千花网品茶微信

Buildings at Tesla’s Sh亚博在线手机千花网女神会所 nearly complete

Construction on 亚博在线手机千花网女神会所the buildings at Tesla’s Shanghai plant has almost completed and the production equ

ipment is being prepared for installation, the auto news website Eelectrek reported on Sunday.

However, a representative at Tesla’s China branch said the plant is not yet finished, and these details are the same as th

e news released at the Tesla shareholders’ meeting, according to National Business Daily.

With an investment of over 50 billion yuan ($7.22 billion), the Shanghai plant, or Gigafactory 3, is the co

mpany’s first manufacturing facility outside the US and the first wholly foreign-funded automotive production project in China.

China is the world’s largest new energy automobile market, so

having manufacturing capacity in the country will help Tesla avoid increasingly unce

A great debate set over tariffs, technologyhorwom

Two television anchorwomen — one from China and one from the US — will debate

two sides of the long-running trade dispute between the two countries.

Liu Xin, a mainstay of the China Global

Television Network, and Trish Regan, a former CNBC busi

ness correspondent who now hosts her

own show on the Fox Business Network, will have at it over i

ssues such as tariffs and technology

Wednesday at 8 pm EDT in the US and simultaneously at 8 am Thursday in China.

The discourse will take place via satellite, as Liu will be in CGTN’s studio in Beijing, while Regan will be at Fox’s studio in New York.

The debate idea came about after the two newswomen clashed earlier this month after Regan said Beijing stole “$600 bill

on worth of intellectual property a year”, leading to the Trump administration tariffs.

Moreover, China’s economic development in the past three de

n large numbers of unattached young people from rural areas move to large cities in sea

To feed this massive market, catering companies have started providi

ivery company, told the Financial Times that 65 percent of its orders come from unmarried customers.

On food delivery platforms, many restaurants offer meal deals specifically for singletons. Pizza Hut provides 15-centimeter, o

Father of slain student petitions court for death penalty

It’s been nearly a year since Xie Diao, a postgraduate student of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, was stabbed seven tim

es to death by his high school classmate Zhou Kaixuan at a restaurant outside the school.

Xie Zhonghua, father of Xie Diao, has been immersed in grief in the past year: He often

dreamed of his son, but then would suddenly awaken and start sobbing uncontrollably.

The case will finally be heard in Beijing First Intermediate People’s Court on May 24. To get justice for his son, Xie Zhon

ghua took to the streets and publicized the case, gathering tens of thousands of signatures that he has su

bmitted to the court. He hopes that, through his petition, the court would sentence Zhou to death.
